Engaging in conflict is challenging whether you are an experienced instructor or new to your role. A likely strategy is to ignore the behavior due to our own discomfort, concern over retaliation or fear that our intervention may cause more harm or disruption.
Through case study examples this workshop will explore Gerald Amada’s research from Coping with Misconduct in the College Classroom and provide participants with tangible strategies to disruptive behavior in a confident and fair manner.
For undergraduate students, reconciling their curricular requirements, cocurricular
events, work and career preparedness, community engagement, and personal challenges
can feel somewhat disjointed, and students therefore have a difficult time finding
connections between all of these experiences (AAC&U/Carnegie Foundation, 2004). Integrative
learning provides students with strategies to make connections between these within
and beyond the classroom activities to help them apply their skills to new and complex
problems and challenges.
This workshop explores teaching strategies and philosophies that help to engage students in activities beyond the classroom and then have students relate those experiences to their courses and curriculum. After reviewing current research and practices on integrative and experiential learning, including how the Center for Integrative and Experiential Learning supports IL and EL, participants will discuss strategies for encouraging students to reflect and make interdisciplinary connections between their experiences within and beyond the classroom to promote creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving.
